For the 16th year running, Wegmans Foods Markets Inc. made Fortune magazine's list of America's top 100 companies to work for.
The supermarket chain, headquartered in Rochester, was number 5 on the 2012 list, which will appear in the magazine's Feb. 4 issue, available for sale Monday.
Wegmans is a perennial on the Fortune list, which ranks companies based on a random survey of employees about job satisfaction, camaraderie, management credibility, internal communication, training and other metrics.
Last year, Wegmans was ranked number 4. "We've been in the top 5 for nine consecutive years, and the top 10 for 11 straight,'' Wegmans spokesperson Jo Natale said Wednesday.
The full list is available for viewing now on the magazine's iPad app.
To mark the honor, Wegmans will serve a cake to customers at each local store on Saturday. Each store will choose a time for the cake ceremony and will post the time at the entrance.
